Okay, step away from the show for a minute. I have really been trying to get Luke to eat more fruits and veggies. He will basically only eat bananas(sometimes), carrots, and green beans(sometimes). I always put a little of the veggie on his plate at dinner hoping he will someday like them.
So last night we had peas. I made him eat two hidden in his mashed potatoes. It was torture for him, but he finally did it. But that was it, no more peas were eaten.
Return to the show. After the party in the tummy song I thought maybe I could use this song to my advantage. This is how the conversation with Luke went...
Me: Why are the veggies crying?
Luke: Because they want to go the party in his tummy.
Me: Why do they want to go to the party?
Luke: Because they are healthy and good for us. (He definitely knows the right answer.)
Me: Do you think the peas that you didn't eat last night were sad?
Me: Will you try to eat more veggies next time?
Luke: I don't know.
Luke: Because they do not have an invitation to the party.
Me: (laughing so hard)
My plan was foiled.
She was smiling at me, but I kept missing it. This was the closest I could get, a little half-smile.
